Review by: Mary Gramlich (The Reading Reviewer)

We all wear masks of some sort. They are a variety of colors and shapes but each one of us at one time or another hides our feelings and thoughts behind this protective barrier. That is exactly what Athena McAllister has been doing her entire life and keeping all the dreams she wants to live inside of her is breaking her down. She is trying to become a marriageable woman but at the age of spinsterhood that is becoming a fleeting dream passing by too fast. Even being sponsored by a lady of high reputation does not help her from getting her heart broken again by a man that cannot stay true. But a chance encounter with a lady of ill repute puts an idea into Athena's head that what is needed is for her to help educate the other "spinsters" of London on the womanly arts of finding a husband so that they too can get married. By day they will learn how to run a household and at night they will discover how to completely love their husband and provide such pleasure that their husbands will never need another to fulfill their desires. Nothing can stop her once she knows that it is the tricks of a courtesan's trade that keep a man happy and faithful - but is that really the answer? When Captain Marshall Hawkesworth the new Marquees of Warridge comes home from sea to discover his sister has taken part in this school his interest becomes not only about the school but the headmistress, Athena. But once he meets Athena, Marshall is no longer sure if it is the school he wants to get more knowledge about or Athena. She is a fiery redhead with a quick answer for everything and an attitude for everyone. Her opinion of men is well deserved but Marshall is sure he can educate her on how giving pleasure to a woman is what a man finds most appealing. Athena has been unloved and mistreated and Marshall knows he is the man to change all that and show her that taking off your mask and revealing all your true feelings is not an event froth with passion and will bring a lifetime of expressions of love and desire. What a delightful surprise this book is because it provides such intense and engaging characters with personalities that never stop entrancing you. There is an angle around every corner that keeps you wondering what exactly Athena is up to, who is out to sabotage the school and why is Marshall so afraid to let love come into his life. Being in control is imperative to both Athena and Marshall but when they let go and become entangled there is such intensity between them no one is in control but their emotions.

fun Regency romance

Lady Athena McAlister caught her chosen fiancé Calvin Breatherton lip locked with very tall bony Lady Posonby. Not being a twit, the twenty-eight year old Athena concludes that men prefer their mistresses over their wives. She ponders how to make the spouse the first choice and concludes a wife must also be the mistress. She persuades her wealthy grandfather to open up a school for young women to teach them the typical agenda of being a lady, but also adds courses on seduction and being a mistress in the boudoir. Athena hires rakes and courtesans as instructors in the "Pleasure Emporium" in Scotland. Marshall Hawkesworth arrives to learn what his sister is studying as she seems to hint of things she should not know about. Athena hires Marshall as an artist's nude model and as a teacher of sensual kissing. To prove his lips' worth, he picks Athena as his first apprentice. Their kiss shocks both of them and each wants more. However, a tabloid wants to do an exposé of the school for scandal and its headmistress; Marshall plans to keep the woman he loves and her pupils safe from any scandal. The third Pleasure Emporium Regency romance (see WHEN A LADY MISBEHAVES and GENTLEMEN BEHAVE BADLY) is a terrific tale that satirizes several standard historical themes. The brisk story line starts a bit slower than usual but once Athena realizes she lacks the seductive weapons to compete with a mistress even one in which she is much prettier and more charming than her towering skinny rival, the plot takes off and never slows down as the heroine never takes a breather. Fans will enjoy the latest use of the infamous brothel. Harriet Klausner
